Retail roadmap to recovery

“It’s been a long road to getting the population vaccinated, but we are finally back in business after months of uncertainty, and with just 60 days to Christmas,” says Dominique Lamb, Chief Executive Officer

“From our briefing with the Victorian Government yesterday, we have received advice that while retail workers are required to have had their first dose by now and get their second by 26 November, customers are not required to be vaccinated to shop at general retail.”

“For our members in fitness, hospitality, and beauty, you are still required to check your customers are fully vaccinated. You can get clear guidance on the Phase C reopening and what will be in store in Phase D of the roadmap by clicking the button below.”

As retail reopens, here are the Retail Trade FAQs for Victoria.

What vaccination requirements apply in retail at Phase C of the Roadmap?

Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has determined that on Friday 29 October at 6:00pm, Victoria will move forward in opening up and more restrictions will ease away. Metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria will operate under the same settings and retail will be open.

Customers attending general retail (e.g. clothing store) and essential retail (e.g. supermarket) will not be required to provide information on being fully vaccinated. Workers in general retail (e.g. clothing store) and essential retail (e.g. supermarket) are required to be vaccinated by the dates specified in the COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination (Workers) Directions (second dose required by 26 November 2021).

What vaccination requirements apply to workers in retail at Phase D of the Roadmap?

On Sunday 24 October 2021, the Victorian Government announced that as Victoria enters Phase D of the National Roadmap to Deliver the National Plan, all workers in general retail (e.g. clothing store) must be fully vaccinated to allow density limits to be lifted at this time. It is anticipated that Victoria will reach Phase D of the Roadmap around 24 November 2021. If your workers are not fully vaccinated, your business may not be able to open.  Encourage your workers to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Vaccination protects you, your family and those in the community who are unable to get vaccinated.

Vaccination protects you, your family and those in the community who are unable to get vaccinated. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated as quickly as possible.
